April 23rd from 6pm-8pm
CRAFT – Southcentre Mall, #273A, 100 Anderson Rd SE

Calling all 90’s kids for our newest rendition of Trivia Nights at Craft Beer Market in Southcentre. Join us for a special night of Trivia – this one’s for all those who were swept off their feet by a young JTT or Kelly Kapowski, who stayed up past their bedtimes to catch an episode of the X-Files or Are you Afraid of the Dark?, and who grew up with the Freshest prince there ever was. #eatmyshorts

3. Wing Woman
April 25th from 6pm-8pm
Bourbon Room, 341 10 Ave SW

Taking a speed dating format, Wingwoman’s monthly event is designed to connect women with other women in a fun, approachable and non-boring networking way – trust us, there will be no unflattering power suits or stuffy conference rooms here. Instead, this casual power hour will give you the opportunity to chat it up with other fierce, like-minded women for three minutes at a time, with the goal of finding the perfect match for what you’re missing in your tribe. Think of Wingwoman as the event that builds your coveted contact list, as opposed to your little black book. You can thank us later.
